PUMPERS WILL BE PURCHASED.
Borough Council so Voted at Its Reg-
ular Meeting Monday Evening.
The persistent demand of property
owners of Bellefonte for better fire
protection and the claim of Belle-
fonte’s volunteer firemen for more
modern fire fighting apparatus was
answered by borough council on Mon-
day evening when that body voted to
authorize the purchase of two motor
pumpers of a type to be approved by
council upon recommendation of the
Fire and Police committee. The sev-
en members present at the meeting
were president Walker and Messrs.
Brouse, Cunningham, Fauble, Flack,
Knisely and Richard, the absentees be-
ing Beezer and Harris. The motion
to authorize the purchase of two
pumpers was voted for by Brouse,
Fauble, Flack, Knisely and Richard.
Mr. Cunningham went on record as
being opposed to the purchase of two
pumpers, while president Walker ex-
ercised his right as presiding officer
by not voting either way.
Clement Dale Esq., appeared in per-
son before council and requested that
something be done to prevent the sur-
face water from Linn and north Alle-
gheny streets during hard rain storms
overflowing the pavement and flood-
ing his cellar. This has occurred sev-
eral times this spring and is very
much of a nuisance as well as a det-
riment to the health of himself and
family. The matter was referred to
the Street committee and borough
manager to do something to correct
A communication was received from
the chief fire marshall to the effect
that the fire hydrant on the corner of
Lamb and Thomas streets had been
fenced in by Arthur Thomas, who in-
ferentially claims it is on his proper-
ty. The matter was referred to the
A communication was received from
the recording secretary of the Wom-
an’s club asking for the removal of the
watering trough from the pavement
in front of the court house, and sug-
gesting as the proper location for
same the upper end of Bishop street.
No action was taken.
A communication was received from
the Eureka Fire Hose company stat-
ing that all their hose was guaranteed
for three years and if any of the hose
purchased from them in June, 1919,
has gone bad it is to be returned and
will be replaced. The borough man-
ager was instructed to make a thor-
. ough inspection of the hose and if any
bad sections are found to return them.
. fighting equipment.
Secretary W. T. Kelly stated that
when Mrs. J. Thomas Mitchell was
here recently and sold her property
she paid water tax for two years, or
$30.00, but as the house had been oc- |
cupied only about three months of
that time she felt that she was enti-
tled to a rebate. Referred to the Wa-
The Street committee reported var-
ious repairs around town and the col-
and $4.72 for old iron sold.
The Water committee reported mak-
ing connection for the water pipe to
the Academy swimming pool; that the
"electric pump was put in commission
again on May 23rd, and the collection
' of $77.00 on the 1919 water duplicate.
The Fire and Police committee re-
ported the Bellefonte Academy fire
and that a new concrete floor had been
put down in the Undine building.
The Finance committee presented
the report of the borough treasurer
which showed a balance on hand June
1st of $3,381.86.
It was at this juncture of the pro-
, ceedings that Mr. Fauble presented the
opinion of the borough solicitor re-
garding council’s legal rights in the
matter of purchasing modern fire
‘fighting apparatus. The opinion was
quite lengthy and quoted decisions
showing that borough councils have
the power to purchase fire fighting
equipment from the general fund, and
under a law passed by the last Legis-
lature council also has power to lay a
tax for general borough purposes as
“high as fifteen mills. Referring to the
present financial condition of the bor-
: ough the solicitor stated that it was
below the limit allowed by law, and
further suggested that if the taxes
| remaining unpaid were all collected
| the financial condition would be ma-
| terially relieved. Mr. Fauble also pre-
' sented the report of the board of un-
derwriters which stated that a town
, the size of Bellefonte, and taking in-
to consideration every prevailing con-
tingency, should have as its fire fight-
ing equipment three triple pumpers
with a combined capacity of two
thousand gallons a minute. But if the
two present fire engines were kept in
reserve two pumpers with a capacity
of six hundred gallons per minute each
should be ample protection, and in
the next rating should materially re-
duce the deficiency charge on all in-
surance, which is now 22 cents per
thousand. Mr. Fauble further stated
that he believed the purchase of the
two pumpers could be made without
adding even one mill to the present
tax rate, and the Finance committee
at the proper time would endeavor to
arrange for the finances.
Mr. Richard then made a motion
that council authorize the purchase of
two pumpers. Mr. Cunningham stated
that he was opposed to the purchase
of two pumpers, but would acquiesce
in one, as he believed that would give
the town ample protection.
Mr. Flack stated that there have
been times when a half dozen could
have been used. The matter was pret-
ty well discussed from every angle,
Mr. Cunningham finally suggesting
that if the motion passed the Fire and
Police committee should not be hasty
in making a selection but should. in-
vite firemen, property owners and
everybody interested to meet with
them and consult in regard to the very
best kind of a machine for the town.
‘Council concurred in this suggestion.
A vote was then taken on the motion
which resulted as stated at the begin-
ning of this article.
Mr. Fauble then presented a resolu-
tion that the secretary be instructed
to notify tax collector J. Kennedy
Johnston that all taxes remaining un-
paid on all duplicates must be collect-
ed and paid on or before September
1st, 1921, or the borough solicitor
would be instructed to proceed against
him and his bondsmen to recover
same. The motion passed.
Mr. Cunningham stated that inas-
much as there had been considerable
talk at the time of the Titan Metal
company fire of the low water pres-
sure at that place he and the borough
manager had gone out and taken the
pressure and found it to be 64 lbs. to
the square inch, while 65 is normal for
most every place in Bellefonte.
Attention was called to the fact that
the recent order of fire hose was not
of the same size or thread of coupling
used in Bellefonte and the fire mar-
shall was directed to return the hose
and secure the right kind.
President Walker stated that at the
time of the building of the state road
on south Water and Willowbank
streets the borough had accepted or-
ders of contractor R. B. Taylor on the
Bellefonte Trust Co. to the amount of
$6,000, only $5,108.38 of which has
been paid. Inasmuch as the bank
wants the balance and the borough is
still indebted to Mr. Taylor in a sum
sufficient to cover the amount he sug-
gested that a motion be passed to pay
the Trust company the balance, or
$891.62, which was done.
Bills to the amount of $1748.94
were approved and council adjourned.
Public Meetings to Select Pumpers.
In accordance with the suggestion
of the borough council the Fire and
Police committee of that organization
will hold a public meeting in the coun-
chamber on Monday evening of
next week to hear any offers or sug-
gestions to be made by the Undine
firemen regarding the type or make of
machine to be purchased. A similar
meeting will be held at the same
place on Tuesday evening to hear
what the Logan firemen have to say,
and a citizens meeting will be held in
the same room on Wednesday even-
ing to give every tax payer of Belle-
: fonte an opportunity to have a voice
in the purchase of this up-to-date fire
every resident of Bellefonte is inter-
ested there should be a large attend-
ance at the citizens meeting.

Presbyterian Congregation Express
Regret and Good Wishes.
C At a congregational meeting of the
lection of $40.00 for sewer permits Bellefonte
Presbyterian church held
on Wednesday evening, June 1st, the
following minute was adopted:
The congregation of the Bellefonte Pres-
byterian church desires to record the deep
regret with which the resignation of the
Rev. Wm. K. McKinney, as pastor of the
church, has been received.
During the five years of his pastorate
there has been a growing appreciation of
his character, of his intellectual power,
and of his many engaging qualities. He
has steadfastly upheld and taught the
need of high standards of christian life in
business and civic affairs, while his at-
tractive and forceful preaching, and his
own example, have combined to give him
a high place in public regard.
Holding fast the vital tenets of the
church his sermons have taught the great
truth that salvation here and in the future,
can only be had through the practice of
the principles of Jesus.
As a pastor he has been deveted, sym-
pathetic, and helpful. As a citizen he has
not failed in the performance of public du-
ty, and as a minister he has upheld and
exemplified the high traditions of his
Our best and kindest wishes follow him
to his new field and it is our sincere wish
that he may find there full opportunity
for doing the work to which he has de-
voted his life.
Commemorated Church Anniversary.
The feast of the dedication of St.
John’s Episcopal church was kept on
Tuesday of this week, commemorat-
ing the consecration of the church
building, forty-nine years ago, or on
June 7th, 1872. From very early
times it has been the custom among
christians to keep such a yearly festi-
val in celebration of the solemn serv-
ices at which the Bishop set apart the
local church to be the House of God
and the Gate of Heaven. Next year
it is planned to observe this occasion
in St. John’s with services and fes-
tivities befitting the fiftieth anniver-
sary. The parish itself is considerably
older than its present church, dating

the State encampment of the G. A. R.,
going from there to Philadelphia yester-
day to see the big parade at the celebra-

tain has planned to accompany them and
do a little frisking on the sandy beach,

of the Atlantic. While the Captain is sev-
